Red Tiger Gaming Debuts Online at BetRivers and SugarHouse Casinos.
If you’re keen for news of new slots games, then this should brighten your day no end: Red Tiger Gaming (a software producer that launched in 2014 and quickly became popular due to its Daily Jackpots mechanic and other innovative concepts) has launched in the US, beginning with Pennsylvania, under NetEnt's license.
Launching exclusively at BetRivers and SugarHouse Casinos, Red Tiger’s Daily Drop Jackpots (Daily Drops are progressive jackpots programmed to drop daily) are not currently available but will hit US markets at a later date. In the meantime, if you want to get a feel for Red Tiger Gaming, take a look at the results when they re-mastered NetEnt's Gonzo’s Quest Slot!
FanDuel and Golden Nugget Secure Illinois Market Access.
As things heat up in Illinois (post sports betting reform in early 2020), both FanDuel and Golden Nugget have this week announced new pathways to secure market access in the state, with both companies opting to build or buy a physical presence.
As a condition of legal gambling licensing in the US, online verticals must have a land-based casino partner with which they share a license. And in this rather unusual move, both Golden Nugget and FanDuel have decided to shake things up in Illinois as FanDuel significantly invests in Fairmount Park Racetrack and Golden Nugget commits to a new-build casino project.
While online casino gambling is not currently legal in Illinois, it is an expected future development, and this positions both companies to take instant advantage of the market as and when regulation comes into force.
